I have been taking an SSRI for over 20 years and recently it was taken off the market. I ran out and went off cold turkey. That has been a real trip!!! I am looking for help with coping with my personality disorder without prescription drugs. I cannot afford to see a psychiatrist and it seems that is the only way I can get help. I am having what I guess you would call "panic attacks" and am still in a fog. (I experienced lots of "fog" during withdrawal.)View Thread
Thanks for your reply. I was hoping that there was some homeopathic calming solution. I am 60 years old and had done the counseling thing for years. I like who I am and accept my personality disorder. I am under a lot of stress at this time, so maybe the symptoms will continue to lessen on their own. After the obvious withdrawal sysptoms, I am left with little anxiety attacks, a churning stomach, and I am somewhat emotional. That is not so bad, but I would still like to know of a way to lessen those symptoms.View Thread
